Psychology for medicine -- a brand new outlook

London (17th December, 2010) Psychology for medicine, published today by SAGE, is the first comprehensive textbook on psychology for medical students that is relevant to all of their undergraduate studies. Following the General Medical Council's call for greater coverage of psychology throughout medical degree courses, this groundbreaking textbook does just that - presenting all the psychology an undergraduate medical student needs to know.

Psychology for medicine aims to give a thorough grounding in relevant psychology theory and research. It has a variety of pedagogical features to help medical students, such as clinical case studies that show how psychology can be used in practice; clinical notes that give students tips and hints for practice on the basis of this; and revision questions to help with exams. A section on evidence-based practice, including adherence, effective clinical interviewing, communication skills, and psychological intervention is also included.

The text covers:

  • Psychology and Health covers core health psychology topics such as stress, symptom perception, health behaviour and chronic illness
  • Basic Foundations of Psychology covers topics from biological, developmental, cognitive and social psychology that are relevant to medicine.
  • Body Systems covers psychological research specific to body systems, including cardiovascular, respiratory, gastro-intestinal, immunology and reproduction.
  • Healthcare Practice covers clinical skills and practice, including chapters on evidence-based medicine, communication skills and psychological intervention

This unique, fully rounded title with enough depth on the subject to span your entire degree is a must buy for all medical students.

`As the fundamental importance of psychological aspects of medical practice becomes ever more evident, and a correspondingly greater knowledge of psychology is required of medical graduates by bodies such as the UK General Medical Council, books like this one must become essential reading for all medical students' - Michael Sharpe MD, FRCP FRCPsych, Professor of Psychological Medicine, Psychological Medicine Research, University of Edinburgh
